Why We Exist

Blue Sea Capital was founded to build long-term equity value by bringing the distinct capabilities and advantages of our team to a select group of lower middle market companies.

We are focused on the needs of the entrepreneur to get to the next level and believe that special lower middle market companies deserve large firm capabilities, experience and resources with a small firm focus and style.

As one of our partners said in his days as a CEO, “large company services with small company service.” For us, it’s not marketing but good business - a replicable value-creation strategy that requires hard work and an active, thoughtful approach focused on operational excellence. We seek to position each company better off at exit than we found it, with a foundation for continued success.

Our mission as private equity investors:

  • Produce top-quartile returns for our investors
  • Collaborate with management to achieve each portfolio company’s vision and potential beyond what might otherwise be accomplished, as demonstrated by growth acceleration, industry outperformance and/or company transformation
  • Create an internal partnership culture that promotes performance, shared values, trust with accountability, teamwork, staff development, fun and work / life balance
  • Conduct ourselves with a commitment to excellence and spirit of fairness, service and integrity
